I need the blue wallpaper of acer just like what's on my signature pic. can you help find one? if you have one, can you send me an email? my email address is gs_zEr0@yahoo.com. I appreciate the effort.
i have a problem with my TM8006, it first died, and after i reinstalled everything several times i keep getting blue screen errors, don't know why, it might be the harddrive, but i'm not sure. If it is the harddrive can i change it by my self?
I'm writing on behalf of a friend who has an Acer Travelmate 4500 series laptop...4502LMi to be precise. XP sp3

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
"Upgraded" one of my acer laptops to Vista from XP and now the beautiful Ferrari wallpaper doesn't function properly. I moved the folder from a different (XP) machine onto the Vista one, and it almost works. If I double-click the "FerrariWP.exe" file, the wallpaper shows up and with the correct date - however it never updates and it stays on the same day. If I uninstall and double-click again-everything is ok until the next day
My guess is that there is a slightly different version needed for Vista, and since Acer did ship many of these laptops with Vista preinstalled, there has to be (Ok, I'm hoping there is) a version floating around somewhere that is Vista-compatible.
Not the end of the world, but I've gotten really used to having that great looking calendar on the desktop and I'm not ready to give it up yet..
I have reformatted my original Dell M1730 HDD and lost the original XPS M1730 Wallpaper. It was the one with the XPS logo with the flowery design on each side of th logo. Can anyone email it to me or post it here so I can copy it back to my HDD?
ive just re-installed vista home premium on my acer travelmate 5320 but now the led for the wireless is reversed, so when the wifi is on the led is off and vice versa does anyone have any ideas whatsoever as i am at a loss with this one.
I want to upgrade the HDD of my TravelMate 2490 notebook but I can't find anything on ebay. Can I used other model's HDD as a replacement? What are the other models that are compatible with TravelMate 2490?
I was given an Acer TravelMate 2300 by someone who has a new one. It came with no guarantees and no recovery CD. It had working verison of XP Pro on it through SP2. I applied SP3 and several updates. It worked good until... I noticed that the C drive was formatted FAT32. So I thought it a good idea to move it to NTFS. Without checking, I fired in "convert c: /fs:ntfs". It rebooted and after a brief look at the Windows XP splash, it goes straight to a stop code x0000024 BSOD. There was nothing on the drive except for the OS so I was felt OK withjust reinstalling from my media.
I dragged out my copy of XP pro slipstreamed with SP2. Booted from CD, went through XP's native setup and detected an "unknown" partition where C used to be. I must've really slammed it. I chose to install to the unknown partition and XP offered to format it NTFS. I chose the thorough format option but it goes only to 24% and stops. The display still shows the progress bar, blue background etc. at 24%.
Since I don't have much experience with laptops, let me ask, is it possible that this laptop/drive ONLY formats to FAT or FAT32 and won't take an NTFS volume? If it will, are there any ideas out there how to apply and NTFS format so I can get this cute little laptop back to a usable state?
i got myself a new Acer Travelbook 5320, i get a win xp image, i burn it to a disc, i put it in, setup loads, i hit enter and he says the setup hasn't found a HD? it says it comes with feakin 160gb of HD memo!
whether the Travelmate 6592G has a matte or a glossy screen. I'm having a had time finding a laptop with those sort of specification that has a matte screen - the information you find online seems often to be ambiguous
I bought a used Acer TravelMate 2420 laptop (WinXP, RAM 1 GM, hard disk 40 GB, Intel Celeron M processor 1,50 GHZ) and since the beginning it had overheating problems and also some issues with power management. And yes, I know it was a stupid thing to buy it, but knowing it doesn't help.
Now the problems: 1. Whatever I do, it keeps overheating, even if no programs are opened. The laptop's fan works very vaguely, and I can hardly hear any sound of it. At first it didn't trouble me much, as it was winter and it would still work, although heated up. I also bought an USB ventilation pad (2 fans), and it helped for some time. But now, when the air temperature is over 30 degrees (in the room), the laptop just "freezes" in the middle of work and stays like this for about 20 min, or just suddenly shuts down completely.
2. I can't turn it off if the power supply is on - I have to unplug it just before the computer shuts down, otherwise it keeps on restarting. Also I can't use it without a battery, as it doesn't turn off in any way (even pressing the power button for a long time doesn't help), and I have to unplug power supply (which ain't no good for computer).
What I already tried to do: 1. Re-installed Windows, installed updates.
2. Checked the computer with various antivirus and antimalware programs (Avira, AVG-free, Malwarebytes' Anti-malware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware).
3. Installed additional Acer utilities: Acer emPowering Framework, Acer ePerformance Management, Acer ePower Management - but they basically didn't let me change anything important (like the fan speed, for example). With PowerManager I changed the CPU speed to Medium, well, it helped a little bit, but the comp. is totally slow now (and still overheats) ... if I set the speed to High, it just turns off after about 10 minutes.
4. Instaled SpeedFan to speed up the fan - but it didn't detect any fan in the computer!
5. Dismantled the laptop (removed the hard disk, the keyboard) to see if the fan isn't clogged, but I still couldn't reach it. So I just used a vacuum-cleaner as much as I could reach, but of course it didn't change anything.
6. Oh and of course I disabled all the unnecessary programmes (by modifying msconfig -> startup).
7. Ran HDD diagnostics, S.M.A.R.T. report showed no problems.
I've read quite a lot now about these laptops, and seems like they all have this overheating problem, but it's usually solved by using a ventilating pad (which helped in my case a bit, but basically didn't solve the problem). I didn't found anybody having these power problems, so I guess maybe a previous user made some stupid modifications... I just don't know how to fix them now.
not sure but my acer beeps three times when starting and no screen showing up, now this is intermitten because I have gotten it to load xp and run, this just started so Im going to maybe clean it out etc, anybody have a idea what I should look for, the funny things is it will work and then it wont
I got my hands on a Core Duo T2050 to drop in my 2490. I went for that CPU as it was cheap, and a 533 FSB, my 2490 allegedly has a 943 chipset (based on the code on the sticker, which started AY702.002). Updated to the latest BIOS, which in the notes has dual core support for various chips.
Fitted it, turned the machine on, and... Nothing. Well, not quite nothing, had the fan and power light, but nothing else.
I've no reason to suspect the CPU is faulty, so I guess it just doesn't work. What puzzles me is why it doesn't work. Surely as it's teh right socket, the chipset should work with it, and the BIOS has dual core support it should work? Unless the motherboard model sticker was fibbing, but that seems unlikely as this machine has DDR2 and SATA, which ties in with being a 943 as well.
Is there a reason why this particular CPU doesn't work, and a definite option for one that does? I can live with droppnig a core solo in, but would rather go dual core for the money
A week ago i bought an Acer Travelmate 8571 with Linus. I installed legal WinXP with SP3 and latest drivers/updates.
After start the computer freezes within 10-20 minutes independently on the running programs. To reboot it one has to use the Power button.
This is not the overheating: the ventilator works and the air temperature is cool. I guess, it can be either problem of the BIOS (v.1.02), which is not able to work with XP, or a wrong installation of the XP.
Does anyone have an idea on the source of the trouble? I would like to keep the notebook due to the advantages of extremely low noise production and long accumulator working time.
I've acer travelmate 2410 purcased in April-2006, It has a sticker near keyboard marked with PCI express slot. Where it is? I need to put new graphic card in that. Below is the pic of its motherboard,the slot for wireless lan is empty,is this the PCI express slot?
My laptop of recent has started to pixelate lines appear first and then everything becomes jumbled, I cleaned the Fan and everything, replace the thermal paste and put the thermal blu tack on it put it all back together and it goes on. The Temp of the CPU is around 60c normally a wee bit lower, it also occasionally during being on will start too appear with lines of pixels then diagonal black pixels at that point i shutdown the laptop, but when i go to put it back on again, I have no screen just what looks like a backlight at the bottom of it, I then have to unscrew and go through the process again.
1. I have 2-3mm of thermal blu tack on the gpu as i've read in another post
2. I have used a paste that a friend whos a techie uses to put on cpu
3. Fan and Radiator thing is cleaned out
4. Can sometimes run for hours and then all of a sudden bang black diagonal pixels..
